“Growing up, I had a hair condition where my hair would fall out easily, and I had bad asthma.”
“I’m introverted, and all my friends make fun of me because all I do is work out and play golf. I’m a grandma: stay in most nights and asleep by 9:30.”
“Turns out, the enjoyment I receive from growing the game through content creation and collaborations, and the work I do with the Cybersmile Foundation around cyberbullying, is leaps and bounds above what I got out of playing competitively.”
“Over the years, golf has evolved from a leisurely game of stick and ball into a competitive sport for highly skilled athletes. Players not only spend countless hours fine-tuning technique on the course, but also improving strength, stability, and endurance in the gym.”
“I dress differently, I don’t conform to what golf is supposed to be.”
“I embrace who I am, and I embrace the fact that I feel empowered feeling sexy.”
“When I was out of college, and not sure what I want to do with my life. I finished this tournament. I was checking my phone and Dan wrote this very lovely article about me on total frat move and it was essentially a love note to me. But it went viral. That article went viral. I went viral. And within a week I went from having 500 followers to 100,000 followers.”
“I would always open up a conversation with, ‘Hey I play golf’ and I thought that it would work. Unfortunately, guys were using me for golf lessons, golf equipment, and golf balls.”
“It would turn into an hour’s lesson of me just helping the guy become a better golfer. That happened all the time since I was desperate and I wanted guys to like me.”
“For people to be like ‘You suck, you need to quit,’ that was really hard for me and I took it very personally.”
“[In 2016] I wasn’t having fun out there anymore … Then I decided just to take a little bit of break from golf to focus on media.”
“The Insta-golf girl morphed into something I wasn’t really proud of, where girls who aren’t into golf started posing to get followers.”
“These girls are out there making golf cool. We are getting more women into golf. I’m proud of where it’s gone.”
“In the very beginning, I stressed over everything that I posted, down to the caption. I didn’t really know how to handle it. Now, I don’t really care. It’s a really freeing realization to get to that point. I have like my podcast, my YouTube, all my social channels and it’s fun to just do whatever I want to do.”
“With golf, there was something that was just so tied into my ego and who I was that it destroyed me. There’s just something about golf – I can’t describe what it is – but when I have a bad round or if someone comments on my golf abilities, it’s just like a knife straight into my stomach.”
“I get a lot of really positive feedback, whether it’s about golf or golf as being horrible sometimes, either anxiety or depression, it could be something deep and meaningful or something silly.”
“I try to always talk about my ups, my downs, and to be as open and honest as possible, even though, you know, it can be hard at times when you’re always vulnerable. I think there’s more good than bad by doing so.”
“I had no outlet. I had no place that I could really show off my personality. I have so much to show and so much I want to talk about. So, we created this podcast basically to talk about all my experiences.”
“I think I’ve done golf for so long that it’s nice to get into other sports, which is a real passion for me. I love watching football and hockey and baseball.“
“I think I’m an easy target to hate. In the beginning I took [the criticism] hard, but it’s not important. Some hate is good because it means you are doing something different and it causes a reaction. You can’t create change if everyone agrees with you.”
Paige Spiranac grew up loving golf and competed in many tournaments. Aside from that, she also writes for magazines and releases her own podcast.
